Josh Duggar plays no part in the new TLC show "Jill and Jessa: Counting On," but his wife Anna still showed just how important he is in the lives of their family members during the episode entitled "At Home & Away."

In the episode, Anna and her four-month-old daughter Meredith Grace are seen visiting Josh at the Reformers Unanimous rehab facility for the first time. Anna said Josh going into rehab was a decision they made as a couple, according to the Duggar Family Blog.

She said she felt good that her husband sought help for his issues, but that at the same time, it was difficult for her to spend time apart from him. "It's not anything I would have thought I would walk through," she admitted.

After her visit, she talked to the other Duggar family members about it and extended Josh's message to them. "I just got back from visiting Joshua," Anna shared with the family. "And he loves each one of you guys very much and is just really grateful for a family that is willing to talk straight and to grieve when you have fallen but also to love and forgive and to have hope."

Anna then thanked Grandma Duggar for setting a great example on how to focus on the love of Jesus Christ during tough times. "This visit was great because it definitely gives a lot of hope," she said. "But the weight of everything is also there. Definitely, it drags me deeper to my faith. God's grace can give me the strength to love Josh when others would say that he doesn't deserve it."

Meanwhile, Josh's younger brother John David said he still loves Josh and talks to him on a regular basis. However, because of his Ashley Madison scandal, things have definitely changed between them.
